There is currently no good way to describe which person is where on a photo with multiple persons. Eg. File:Myrthe Morrees, Lynn Wilms en Joelle Smits - 1578063654.JPG, how to say in Structured data that Myrthe is on the left, Lynn in the middle and Joëlle on the right? series ordinal (P1545) isn't suited, because why should we start counting on the left?

  •   Comment - We already have shown with features (P1354) and depicted part (P5961). Both are not completely identical to what you're proposing, but could be used as such. Also, for identifying on a more specific basis relative position within image (P2677) is also available. Husky (talk) 20:30, 8 January 2020 (UTC)
  •   Comment I am not sure weather this is a clear way to do so as many images depicts 3D space. If you say something is on the right, one may ask on the right from where? --Juandev (talk) 15:30, 9 February 2020 (UTC)
